Note: Depending on the time it takes the nightly system cycle to run, FISS may not always be available at 5:00 a.m. CT. In addition, FISS system releases may affect availability over weekends.

Monitoring Your Billing Transactions

CGS recommends that you use FISS to check your billing transactions at least once a week. Checking more often is encouraged. For some billing transactions, you may need to take additional action after you have submitted them. There are often provider deadlines associated with these additional actions. For example, when responding to an additional development request (ADR) (status/location S B6001), documentation must be received by CGS within 45 calendar.

(Video) Keyboard Commands and Movement within Direct Data Entry (DDE)

Some claims may be returned to the provider (RTPd) due to missing, incorrect, or incomplete information. You will need to access your billing transactions in the Return to Provider (RTP) to make the necessary corrections. When a claim is corrected from the RTP file, it will receive a new receipt date.

To assist you with monitoring your billing transactions, CGS has developed the following checklist. When you sign on to FISS, you should:

  • Check option 56 (Claim Count Summary) within the "Inquiry Menu" to see a quick summary of billing transactions that are currently processing in FISS. Refer to the Inquiry Menu section of this User Manual for information about the Claim Count Summary screen.
  • Correct any billing transactions that are in your RTP file. Refer to Claims Correction" section of this User Manual for additional information.
  • Respond to any ADR. Refer to the Inquiry Menu section of this User Manual for information about accessing ADRs.

About Status/Location Codes

As billing transactions process in FISS, they move through various stages of the system. These stages are identified by status/location codes and provide information about what's happening to the billing transaction. Sometimes the status/location indicates that you need to take action on the billing transaction in order for it to continue processing. There are six status codes that are represented in FISS by one letter (e.g., P for Paid). By looking at the status, you can quickly find what's happening to your billing transaction. Review the table below to familiarize yourself with these codes. This table will be a valuable resource when reviewing the Claim Count Summary (56) screen.

Claim Status Which Means?

P (Processed/Paid)

Claim is approved for payment and is on the payment floor. This is also considered to be a finalized status.

R (Rejected)

Billing transaction is rejected for reasons such as:

  • Medicare eligibility issue
  • Billing issues
  • Duplicate to a previously submitted claim

D (Denied)

Claim is denied by medical review or claim was submitted as a demand denial.

S (Suspended)

Billing transaction is temporarily paused in FISS for processing and/or Medicare staff intervention may be required. No action is required by you unless the claim is in status/location S B6001 (Additional Development Request (ADR)). Billing transactions may be suspended for about 30 days. Claims that have been selected for an ADR or for medical review may be suspended for more than 30 days. Claims with Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) information often require Medicare staff intervention and may be suspended for more than 60 days.

T (Return to Provider [RTP])

Billing transaction is waiting for correction by you in the RTP file.

I (Inactivated)

Billing transaction was inactivated or suppressed from RTP. Awaiting final system purge.

Locations further define what is happening to a billing transaction in a particular status. Locations are 5-character positions that follow the status code (e.g., P B9997; where P is the status and B9997 is the location). There are thousands of combinations of status/locations and not all are represented in this guide. Because of the quantity, CGS does not provide a printed handout of all the possible status/location code combinations. However, we do provide you with the most common status/location codes listed below.
